1956 Shatin Babies' Home

This picture comes from a news brochure sent to supporters of the Home in 1956.  The Home was originally a police station but taken over by Mildred Dibden in 1953 for a nominal rent.   These brochures were sent out annually.  I don't know the date the photo was taken but it shows the post-war sparseness of vegetation, when all available wood was taken for cooking and heating.  Today the landscape is quite different with high-rise housing and lush green vegetation.
